This was my second time here for breakfast. The food is tasty with nice non-pork meat options which is a plus because pork is in everything in the south, including the bottled water! LOL. Service is fantastic. The food is served in a timely fashion and its always full of friendly customers. I think it's a Columbus institution. It is... More

Hotel recommended. Not impressed. Food was ok, service was slow - waitress was super nice. Ordered veggie omelette nothing to write home about. Hash browns were good. English muffin was cold and waaaaaay over buttered. Coffee was good.

Stopped in here with recently graduate of boot camp # Ft. Benning and the food was yummy. Red Velvet pancakes that our grandson had were yummy. I ordered corned beef hash and asked them to make it crispy......it was PERFECT! A bit slow, but it was a weekend, and they were busy. To be expected when you find a little... More

Worse breakfast ever. My omelette was so greasy. The bacon and ham was hard as a rock. Waitress was nice but to busy I guess cause it was hard to get refill on coffee. Or attention about the meat. Way Over priced. I will never go back or tell anyone else to go.

While on court business in Columbus, we wanted good food, close to the uptown area. We found a great breakfast place in Ruth Ann's. Smiling, courteous waitstaff and quick service helped us to make this a great break from the business of the day, without a lot of time lost in travel.

Hi all. This place rules. Their Benedict selection is robust, so I suggest all of them. I also like their red velvet pancakes and captain crunch French toast. That's about all I have to say about that. Bye!

We are here visiting our son at Fort Benning. I asked Siri for a local breakfast place. Ruth Ann's came up with 80 reviews. We went. We were greeted by Penny. A smile, a warm greeting, and coffee in her hand. I had some modification requests - the veggie omelette no cheese, no peppers, with a plain burger on the... More
